May 21, 1998 - In March the Kiwanis club of Castries, established a fund to provide financial assistance for a young child who needed corrective surgery for his cleft pallet. Just two month later, young Keegan Emmanuel has received the first contribution which will go towards a series of operations to treat his deformity.

During a presentation ceremony Wednesday, staff members of the Government Information Service presented Keegan and his mother with proceedings from fund raising activities that were held to raise funds for the surgery.

Dr. Lowell A. Huges, a plastic, cosmetic and hand surgeon will soon arrive in St. Lucia to begin the first stage of the surgery, which is to be under taken at the Tapion Hospital. This initial stage is expected to cost in the region of EC$5,000.

Quite a few individuals and organizations have already made contributions including Cable and Wireless, which recently made its donation of $2500. Persons interested in contributing to the Keegan Emmanuel fund can do so at the St. Lucia Co-operative Bank.
